I've beenThis game is wonderful for anyone who appreciates a good story in a game: fans of the old classic Fallout games will love this. I've been playing all night and its 6:30am now and I can't wait to get back in to the game. The story is incredibly interesting and the characters are very well designed. there is a mix of humor and suspense, the visuals are awesome and the music is top notch. The devs set out to make a game about what shadowrun is about: immersion and story. if your version of a good game is action and ironsights move elsewhere: this is a thinking mans game.
the reason it gets a 9 and not a 10 is it has a few flaws: the equipment/magic screen is terrible: you need to visit a shop to equip and unequip weapons and spells. This is especially jarring for spellcasters like shamans. Shamans are supposed to learn their spells from their mentor spirits, not from the quick-e-mart!… Expand

Most negative reviewers of thisA wonderful experience that is a breath of fresh air in a genre bogged down with boring iron sights shooters. Most negative reviewers of this experience are missing the point entirely. Like someone watching a play of Hamlet while yelling they want their football. I guess this game is not for everyone, just the intelligent.… Expand

They took away all the customization that I loved about Diablo 2. The UI was confusing and there was no hotkeys for my abilities. This is simple stuff here. I had to go into a menu to change my spells mid battle.. that was ridiculous. There was no main lobby so I could see other players and their gear with channels and custom channels. There was no skill tree's to let me customize my character. I am the same wizard everyone else is. This is unforgivable. I kept myself igorant of this game through development so that I could enjoy the end product spoiler free.. instead all I felt was a sudden clash of disappointment.… Expand

I should have listened to the reviews.. believed the poor ratings, but I decided to get this game anyway when I had a strong nostalgia for something wasteland-ish and having already played all the other games out there.
It was terrible.. that big red rating up there? that is accurate. In fact its worse.. that 4.4 has been padded by fanboys and what I believe to be company employee's rating 10.
Textures take time to load when you turn around. The plot is so insanely contrived its abysmal. The starting sequence is 'get out of pod, get attacked by previously invisible enemies, guy pulls you on a car after psychically knowing you were there and drives you home, doesn't offer you a drink or a rest.. puts a gun in your hand and says 'go kill' its insane and I think 10 year olds could write a more believable start to this game. After getting cut-scened to progress the plot (I despise cuts-cene defeats with the passion of a thousand suns) I just gave up.. its poorly wrote, buggy, has a counter intuitive UI and leaves you utterly frustrated at every turn.… Expand

Everything I had hoped for. It would be a 10/10 only the interface has blatant consolitis and feels very counter-intuitive. For a series that has always been a PC gamers haven it feels like a betrayal. Otherwise, I am enjoying the game immensely: considering the interface frustrations this is testament to how good the base game is.… Expand

This is definitely the best entry in the series and the dev team has pulled out all the stops. I have played the entire series and know its faults and strengths and they really outdid themselves. The music is top notch, extremely memorable with a lot of new tracks as well as the inclusion of many beloved classics from earlier titles. The game has a new crisp sprite as well as the ability to change the graphics back to the old style so you can get the classic disgaea visual experience if you want. The balance has been worked on and you can now expect some challenge from the base game instead of special combo blitzing your enemies. The dialogue has real heart and the humor is top notch, expect to be grinning like an idiot at the very least as you play! If not laughing out loud at some of the better jokes. The English voice acting is the best I can say I have heard from any game! And I said that about disgaea 3 also. The disgaea series is one of the few I can safely say has better voice acting than the Japanese originals, and that's coming from a Japanese anime fan!
This game is just perfect.. its got a simple learning curve for newcomers, a great tutorial and I could not recommend it any more to old fans and newcomers to the genre alike, as well as anime fans! (you will find lots of in jokes and references from anime and video games in there too, flawlessly delivered.)… Expand
